  1. Hi folks, Some of you will know that about two years ago I created PDFs of the Puppet Wars stat cards for the old metal puppets that weren't in the unstitched box. This started as a personal project, though I've let it be known on this forum that they exist and have shared with anybody that has asked for a copy (roughly one person every 4-6 weeks, though I think the link has been shared via BoardGameGeek too). I asked Wyrd for permission to share more widely and they said they'd have to think about it. Well, two years later, especially given LuckyReplica's effort to rejuvenate interest in this game, I think it's about time I just posted the link here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/15iq21nmqzf5d8z/AACh2PoNvhjAHXaIMRVSib2da?dl=0 These are based on the online crew creator that Wyrd used to have up on the Puppet Wars site (but which they've since taken down). They are only for the extra puppets not included in the unstitched box - i.e. the puppets that were in the first version of the game but which were never officially released in the unstitched version. I hope these contribute to revitalisation efforts. Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback. Brass Monkey

  3. Pullmyfinger Wiki and Malifaux M2E

    Any reason why Pandora's entry at PMF seems to have vanished? https://pullmyfinger.wikispaces.com/M2E+Pandora
  4. Which models have frustrated you to build?

    Abuela's hat. The three little skulls are on a single piece that ought to fit in a corresponding slot in the hat brim. Had to gouge huge hole in brim to get it to fit then copious miliput needed to fill gaps afterwards On this occasion, three separate skulls would have been much easier to attach to the hat. Also, brass arachnid was tricky to position as intended.

    Weren't they always locked? My version works just like it always has.

  7. Hello Wyrd Forum

    Welcome to the wyrdness.
  8. The game is viable now as a stand-alone game. It's a little neglected perhaps, and is begging for an expansion box or two. I don't think a third edition is needed. We know that Wyrd have put some thought into expansions already, as the art and (playtest) cards for additional models were available for a while via the online crewbuilder (the broken link to which still exists under 'resources'). Sadly these have now been taken down, though as some of you know I have made a PDF of the unreleased playtest cards which I'm happy to share if you PM me. I really recommend reading the article in Issue 5 of the Wyrd Chronicles (click here) for some background on why Wyrd made the changes they did to Puppet Wars Unstitched. One interesting bit is the fact that the original version of the game was thought to be competing (but not well) against Malifaux itself too much. There are obviously plenty of Malifaux players with a soft spot for this game, but are there enough to make it financially viable? The cross-over ideas sound cool, but maybe it needs to be marketed better at non-Malifaux players too. I know I'm much more likely to get a game of this with my family, for example, than I would with a full-on wargame such as Malifaux. Fingers crossed for the future!
  9. February promotion?

    Hi folks. Payday today (at last!) and I'm planning next month's purchases. There's no February promotion on the main Wyrd website (https://www.wyrd-games.net/where-to-buy) - is there likely to be one? We haven't had a "Spend $60 at your FLGS" promotion since October and I'm about to put an order in with my local store. If such a promotion was coming up in next couple of months then I will plan my spending accordingly. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thank you. B. Monkey

    Oh yes please. A million times this.
  12. PW:U and Malifaux

    Both games have their rules available for free on Wyrd's website (see the 'Resources' page), so you can compare them yourself. Much of the flavour of Malifaux seeps into PWU but the latter is simpler. You still flip cards to resolve actions, have a hand of cards with which to augment flips, each character has their own set of actions and abilities, etc.
  13. Malifaux Companion Beta - Android App

    Awesome news. Definitely the best Malifaux app out there.
